Computer Science (B.S., M.S., Ph.D.)

Computer Science is the science of using computers to solve problems. Mostly, this involves designing software, computer programs and addressing fundamental scientific questions about the nature of computation. It also involves many aspects of hardware and architecting the large computer systems that form the infrastructure of commercial  and government enterprises. Computer scientists work in many different ways: pen-and-paper theoretical work on foundations and fundamentals of coding, designing software and computer programs, programming work using a computer, and collaborative teamwork to complete research and solve software and programming issues.
